Delacroix, Louisiana - Saltwater Fishing Report
Inside marsh

Great weekend fishing out of Delacroix. Easy limits of trout in the deep winter time holes. The fish have been in the 12-18" class with alot of small fish mixed in. We have been having sucess catching the most fish on artificial cocahoes in dark colors. Smoke has been best with alvacado second. 1/4 ounce jigheads work best on the light tide days and 3/8 ounce better in the deeper spots with more water movement. We have found fish the last few days glued to the bottom in 10 -14' of water. The trout want a slow to no retreive. We have been casting upstream and letting the lures tumble back into the awaiting fishes mouths. The redfish action has been scattered. We did get into a decent bite working the windward side of an inside lake with broken marsh shoreline. These fish wanted live shrimp 2' under corks and worked pretty aggressively. The fish were 16 - 21". The water is still really low, but the winds are to clock around from the south this week which should bring some water back. It looks like another front is coming too, which may blow it back out. Good luck out there this week!
